The option that was available when we were in town was the Preservation Station where you can get your photo taken with various baby animals. There are people there (they are on every side of those getting their pictures taken) to instruct you on how to hold each baby, and make sure the animals don't try to run away if the person holding them gets skittery and moves away (like if you see big paws and freak out for half a second, which my big, brave boy
would never do did). Once he got past that though, and it only lasted a second, his face lit up with happiness. Imagine the joy of being able to hold animals you might never even see in the wild, in your whole life! It was really quite the treat. Top-Left, baby tiger (that cub makes my 5 ft. 7 in. cub look rather tiny); Top-Right, White Tiger Cub; Middle-Left, Red-Ruffed Lemur; Middle-Right, Gibbon; Bottom-Left, again with the white tiger cub; Bottom-Right, baby chimpanzee.
You get a free 8x10 printed and the rest on a digital download to take home with you, if you buy the full package. We were so happy with our experience. Being able to touch and interact with animals we usually only see behind glass or on a TV screen was amazing. In fact, it was one of, if not our most favorite thing that we did while we were on vacation in Myrtle Beach. I highly recommend it for any upcoming vacation time. It's something everyone in the family will remember for a long time to come. Learn more by visiting the Myrtle Beach Safari website. You can also follow them on Facebook, YouTube and/or Twitter.
